YOUNG50 #Stay Healthy - Cardiovascular Risk Prevention

Online the fifth newsletter of the YOUNG50 Project

 

The European YOUNG50 – #Stay Healthy – Cardiovascular Risk Prevention project has published its fifth newsletter!

 

The newsletter includes a presentation of the Animated Video that presents the YOUNG50 project and news about the launch of the screening activities in Romania and Lithuania.

In Romania the implementation of the screening activities for identification of behavioral and biological risk factors for cardio-vascular diseases included in the European project Young 50 have started in September 2021. The program is organised at local level through cooperation between NGO Aer Pur Romania, Iuliu Hatieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy from Cluj-Napoca, Romania and Public Health Directorate of Cluj County, Romania.

Also in Lithuania on 25 September was launched the screening programme. Centro Poliklinika, Lithuanian partner of the project, from its patient database selected all 49-50 years old persons as potential participants and started with the screening activities.

Moreover, the newsletter includes news on the publication titled “Pandemic heightens the need to combat cardiovascular diseases” of the Lancet Regional Health Europe and on the launch from the European Commission of the “Health & healthy lifestyle” European-wide campaign.

Furthermore, information on the recent European initiatives are included. In fact, in the past few months the World Obesity Federation announced a new feature of its Global Obesity Observatory, “Presentation Maps”. Downloadable maps are available with survey-based prevalence data, obesity-related drivers & comorbidities, comparable estimated prevalence data, and more. Finally, the last September the European Alliance for Cardiovascular Health was launched during a policy debate attended by representatives of the European Commission, Member States and European Parliament. The main goal of this Alliance is to call for a comprehensive EU policy response to improve the cardiovascular health of European citizens.
